    I have an old Mac Mini G4 on which I would like to run some educational games for my daughter. Unfortunately they are all OS 9. How do I run these games on OS X. I've read some reference to what's called Classic but how does that work? I bought the machine with Panther but have since upgraded to Leopard.

    Any leads would be welcome.

    they wont run at all in leopard
    leopard has removed support for 'classic' apps (apps from os 8 & 9 etc)
    in order to run them, you need tiger or earlier

    You'll need SheepShaver to get it working. Let me know if you need help setting it up.
